  1. When refurbishing these buses, does OC Transpo replace the powerplants as well (as done in the Inveros) or is it just strictly structural rebuild?
  2. Excuse the stupid question, but is this LFSe funding the reason why D60LF refurbishments have been slowly paced? They started in December 2017 and they've only done four with two more in refurbishment right now.
  3. Replacement bus route for the Confederation Line whenever it goes out of service. As for the test, I have no idea what exactly they were testing.
  4. OC 4440 has been stalking me the past few days.
  5. 4421 is missing its bike rack for some reason, seen around 15:10. 5014 on 14 Carlington at Carling/Parkdale at 15:14. 4455 on 56 Tunney's Pasture at 15:05 at Carling/Cambridge.
  6. I'm starting to get kind of annoyed with these "Queensway should have gotten new LFSs instead of 84-86xx" comments. They're still relatively new. Genius101 already complained a long time ago, so what will more complaining do? If you have an issue with Queensway not getting new buses, fine, but please don't keep bringing it up here for it doesn't really add anything constructive.
  7. A suggestion: Would it make more sense for the repainted 15xx units to be marked in orange instead? From what I heard a few months back, they weren't actually rebuilt but were only repainted instead.
  8. 1090-1094 are tracking at Hillcrest along with 1098-1100. 1095 and 1096 are not tracking but I am assuming they are at Hillcrest along with 1090-1094.
  9. 1127 was repainted since February. 1071, 1077, and 1127 were the first three repainted.
  10. 6642 (rebuilt) was on 101 Bayshore today at Carling/Holland around 3:15 pm or so. I usually see Inveros on this route at this time.
  11. Correct, 8138-8143 were added on to the 8101-8137 order to replace 4201, 4249, 4280, 4315, 4378, and 4385.
  12. It has the full wrap. I saw the same bus going down today.
  13. Would anybody happen to have the delivery and in-service dates for 9801-9885 and 4001-4140? I also seem to recall reading somewhere that 9885 was delivered in March 1999.
  14. Since the entire orders of 0911-0925, 1001-1027, 1101-1107, and 1227-1233 only add up to 56 buses, what other order will be getting the wrap? I'm thinking maybe the 04xx since they don't seem to be retiring and they add up to 73 buses in total being wrapped. I can't see them doing the Rapibus livery artics or the 12xx artics in the old white livery.
  15. Is it just me or do I have a kind of love-hate relationship with the new Flexity livery on the TTC OG hybrid Orion VIIs? Personally, I do like the livery but the front would probably be my least favourite part. I'm not saying it looks horrible (in fact, it looks okay), but it's weird to see a VII with black fleet numbers on white paint instead of the other way around on the NGs. I'm curious to see if people think this is an improvement over the original livery on the OGs. I love both liveries on the OGs, but on the NGs, the new livery is an improvement for sure.
